Facebook has been reportedly gearing up to launch a video service for its photo sharing service Instagram on its event scheduled for June 20. A tipster has informed Techcrunch that Facebook is readying this service for allowing people to shoot as well as share videos on the Instagram, which will work as the social network s answer to Twitter s Vine service.
Facebook has for long being tackling competition from other social networks like Twitter which have been gaining traction and popularity amongst users. The company, in fact, has lately been seen adding new features which have earlier been seen on Twitter. Recently the company had added hashtags a little while after introducing verified profiles and pages, which were both first seen on Twitter.
Twitter introduced the Vine app earlier in the year, and the service picked up traction especially after being released on Android.
